Southampton and England forward Jay Rodriguez is ready to decline a new contract, as Liverpool and Tottenham are ready to pounce.

Rodriguez, 24, was offered a five-year contract by the Saints, to fend off alleged interest from the two waiting Premier League sides, according to the Daily Mirror.

It also comes after the side have lost a host of talented stars so far this summer, including Luke Shaw to Manchester United and Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert to Liverpool.

Other players such as Dejan Lovren, Morgan Schneiderlin and James Ward-Prowse could be heading for the exit as well, topping a pitiful transfer window for the south coast club.

New boss Ronald Koeman needs to do something to stop this endless selling or else the club will be in big trouble.

Talented England player, Rodriguez is said to be waiting for an offer from former boss Mauricio Pochettino or to join former team-mates Lallana and Lambert at Liverpool.

Although he is still currently injured after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in early April, which left him out of the World Cup squad and he is still recovering from it now, both clubs are said to want him in that condition.

Before the injury, he showed incredible form, scoring 15 goals in 33 appearances proving that the top clubs should be interested in him.

And as Southampton go into their pre-season tour looking to get ready for the new campaign against the side who has took nearly all of their players, Liverpool, they hope to build upon the 8th place they gained last season.
